Dealing with flooding they best they can

Small exhibit, admission is by donation. They have been flooded twice recently, so in my opinion they are coping well. Hope to see more exhibits the next time we are out this way.

This place suffered a terrible Natural Disaster, and the way the people came together and help to make it not tragic is remarkable. The men with the diggers and the back hoes, the people who helped move items up floors to make sure not too much was lost and how everyone did not stop till they were exhausted is a... More

Not much to see, but I'm glad Canmore residents are proud of their history. Staff at the little (and expensive) gift shop is awesome.

Still limited displays due to flood damage. But the displays that they have are well done. Public washrooms are avalible as well. The staff was very helpful. The museum it self was informative. Overall worth the donation also it will help them get back to full capasity.

So limited displays. I'm sure it will be great when it's got everything up and running again. Glad we dropped in.

The Barracks is not at the same location as the museum. it was a very interesting little place where one of the Mounted police with his family of 5 children and his wife lived. The grounds would be pretty in the Spring and Summer, as flowers could be seen that had dried up. There was a garden and a hand... More

My sister went there last year, so she and the kids were excited to take me there only to find that they were closed due to a flood. Mind you, it wasn't the June 2013 flood that hit Alberta, sadly the museum was flooded because of a broken pipe in winter of 2014. They have a small gallery of the... More

There is only one exhibit here, which is a story of the 2013 floods. While it is well done and you really gain an appreciation for a city coming together, you can go through it in under 20 mins and then that is all there is. We thought given the title Geoscience Center there would be something about the geography... More
